The PHN Immunisation Support Program is a service funded by the Commonwealth Government, targeting staff working at Primary Health Networks (PHNs), state and territory health departments, public health units and other key stakeholder organisations.

NCIRS and NPS MedicineWise are partners leading the development and implementation of this program. NCIRS is the content lead for this important initiative.

The program focuses on building a community of practice by:

  • creating an environment that facilitates collaboration and networking

  • providing a hub for accessing resources and expertise

  • enabling the sharing of skills and knowledge between experienced and less experienced staff.

Specifically, the program provides: 

  • access to an online platform that provides high-quality resources, education, news and updates, network directories. This platform enables PHNs to connect and share ideas

  • development of resources and education where significant gaps are identified

  • networking opportunities, such as teleconferences and face-to-face events

  • central coordination of all program activities.
